Its possible that there is something wrong with your installation of Rails since you did it manually. I suggest trying Instant Rails, which includes Ruby, Rails, and MySQL all preconfigured and ready to run (it also include Apache, but you can just ignore that part):


http://instantrails/rubyforge.org/


Also, there is a modified version of the cookbook tutorial that is specific to Instant Rails that you can find here:

    I tries Instant Rails....with exactly the same result. I think it must be some problem with my PC. I tried your tutorial at home: works instantly. I'll try it there, instead of wasting more time, i'm due for a new computer anyway!

    thanks for the help,

      We have sort of same kind problem with three PCs in our office. (2 WinXP, 1 W2K ... all Japanese Version)

      I had tried with not only WEBRick, but also SCGI. The problems had not been resolved; this is not because of WEBrick. Also, I have installed Rails from scratch with two differenct version of Ruby besides the InstantRails, and they didn't work either.

      Finaly, I have removed some applications from my PC, and then the problem has gone. The most suspiciousĀ@application was "secure application manager"--- but the name was in Japanese Characters---, I guess.

      Before the action I took, I have checked file+directory permissions, because the server application seems not able to read/write something, or some event requests are hooked by the other process.

      Why don't you check out dubious applications in your PC? Hopefully the problem would be resolved.
